1) What the heck “lies in the shadow of the statue?” What was the language Richard responded with? Spanish? Latin? Curse my monolingualism. (Actually, I do know quite a bit of German, but that hasn’t come in handy with this show. DH’s Korean has, though. Who woulda thunk?)
2) Who is the guy who wants to kill Jacob? Have we seen him before and I’ve just forgotten? What’s the loophole? What’s the deal altogether?
3) If John Locke is really dead, then we know that the other people who keep appearing on the island as the walking undead or whatever are really, um, what?
4) Is the smoke monster behind all this?
And I gotta say, for people who had to hijack a sub and beat the crap out of a few folks, Juliet and Sawyer sure did change their minds in a jiffy. Kate, also, risked her life to make sure that Jack didn’t detonate the bomb, and yet with a nod from “Blondie” and her guy Sawyer, she’s all set to let Jack blow them all to smithereens. Awfully convenient.
And how is blowing up the island going to get Kate back? Are they going to have some “Made in Heaven” moment where they pass each other on the street, and just KNOW? Come to think of it, Jacob sort of does resemble that weird smoking God character in that movie, and Jacob is sort of supposed to BE God, right? So maybe the writers are abandoning the Narnia thread and just going with cheesy 80 movie themes now.
And if Jacob is supposed to be God, is Ben supposed to be Job? I mean, he kind of gets to yell at God like Job did, and Jacob sort of gives him a back handed answer. Is this the writer’s way of saying that really, Job deserved something better than a “Where were you when I created the world” in answer to his boils erupting all over his face?
And who is coming? I’m trying to remember what happens in the chronology of the island to think of what or who Jacob is talking about–everybody that we know about is already there, right? Dharma, Rosseau, Widmore, everybody. Are there even more “other others?”
Okay, question of the day: Was the light really the bomb going off, or another flash? And given how this show works, we’re probably going to have to wait for that answer for another year.
I want arms like Kate. And Sayid—(sigh). I just like looking at the guy. Hope he didn’t die.
Anyway, I gotta say that I’m really looking forward to next year, although I find it irritating that we have to wait such a long time to get back into this. Surely I will have forgotten almost everything by next January.
